We would urge some of the students 
to take more interest in The Cres- 
cent. This is your paper, or it should 
be, and you should feel the responsi- 
bility of its success. The editorial staff* 
can not make it what it should be 
without the help of all the students. 
Each one should be able to say this is 
our paper, it is published by us, and for 
us. Do not stand back (as some do), 
and say, "Yes of course I would like to 
help you but I am just too busy to do 
much of that kind of work." This 
may be the case with a very few, but 
as a rule it is the busy student that 
helps the most in public work. 



In this issue we publish the last 
part of the article by H. T. Cash, 
"A Friends' Boarding School in Eng- 
land." It gives an account of "Sid- 
cot,'* a school Mr. Cash attended when 
a school boy. 



Read the poem in this issue by L. 
Ella Hartley. The poetic talent of the 
college, if more fully developed, would 
be beneficial both to the writers and 
to the school. 



A good lecture course in a college 
forms an interesting and instructive 
part of a student's college life. Many 
eastern colleges and universities have 
well established courses for which they 
procure only the very best talent. 
Two or three years ago an attempt was 
made to have a series of lectures, and 
two out of the series planned for were 
heard. Since that time no steps have 
been taken in this line, only as the fac- 
ulty or others occasionally secured 
speakers. Some of these have been of 
high merit and we would not speak 
against them, but want to see more of 
' the first class speakers come here in 



THE CRESCENT. 



the interest of the College and educa- 
tion. This department should be so 
thoroughly organized and funds raised 
so that no lecturer of merit would pass 
by uncalled on, and not only that but 
Oregon has many able speakers, some 
of whom we have heard, who might be 
had. If the colleges of Oregon would 
unite, they might secure some of the 
best talent from the east to give a series 
of lectures at each college. 



for sure what your big boys and girls 
are doing, after which will be the time 
to reform your neighbor's children. 



It has been said that children, when 
in public places, represent the home 
life and training of their family; this 
certainly has been proven to be a fact 
by numerous illustrations. 

We include in the term children, a 
part of that class commonly known as 
young people. Young persons can as 
certainly lower their character in the 
estimation of the better class of people 
by their bad behavior when in public, 
as in any other way. 

Even some college students do not 
conduct themselves as becometh ladies 
and gentlemen. 

Young man, stop a moment and ask 
yourself how you would do were your 
father and mother by your side. 

Young lady, stop your giggling and 
remember that you are not acting as 
becometh a lady; and what is more, 
you are casting a shadow of disrespect 
upon your parents. 

And now parents, you who may have 
complained of the disorder at the church 
or lecture, open both your eyes and see 



One of the greatest needs of this 
western country today, is men and wo- 
men to teach in the public schools, who 
are qualified both naturally and intel- 
lectually for the business. 

Many have believed that almost any 
body could teach ; especially so if they 
knew enough about the text books to 
pass a county examination and secure 
a certificate. It requires more than 
this to be a good teacher. Without 
wishing to injure the reputation of any 
teacher, or to detract from the value 
and importance of the examination, 
we believe many persons have secured 
certificates who in reality were not 
competent to give instruction to the 
young and tender minds placed in their 
charge. A greater n umber of the teach- 
ers in our public schools should belong 
to that class who expect to make teach- 
ing a study, a business, a life work. 

While we say this, we realize that per- 
haps a majority of those teaching to- 
day do not intend to follow that kind 
of business longer than a few years at 
most; perhaps no longer than will be 
required to secure enough money to en- 
gage in something more suited to their 
tastes, and possibly better suited to 
their abilities. 

The prosperity of our nation is wrap- 
ped up in the education of the children. 
Education is the channel through

which many of the evils of our land 
can and will be removed. What a vast 
field for missionary work is opened to 
the teacher. Several of our young men 
and women have taken up this line, 
and we are glad to hear of their success- 
ful work both at home and abroad. 
Others now in school are making 
special preparation for this work. 
Those who engage in the work because 
it gives employment indoors and they 
can sit in a roeking chair and wear 
good clothes, are not wanted. None 
should be discouraged by what has 
been said, but be stirred with determi- 
nation to advance a step should they 
feel their lack in some certain line. 
The opportunity now offered to those 
expecting to teach if properly used will 
enable them to fill the position of 
teachers in an acceptable and benefi- 
cial way to others. This is a worthy 
calling and considered from a selfish 
standpoint is a profitable one. The de- 
mand is and will continue to be for 
teachers who are fully qualified for the 
work. Why not meet this demand by 
commencing the preparation at once?

Although the subject of gymnastics 
is receiving more attention at present 
than it has during the past term, much 
improvement needs yet to be made. 
There is not nearly enough interest tak- 
en in it by the students. 

While we are all busy cultivating the 
mental faculties, we are neglecting the 
physical part of the body. 

" Man is a three-fold being; mental, 
spiritual, and physical." While the 
first two powers should be highly culti- 
vated, the other should not be neglect- 
ed, for, without exercise, no one can re- 
tain perfect health, and when the body 
suffers, the intellect also suffers. 

"The educated man," says David 
Page, "Has a healthy mind in a healthy 
body." How can one have a healthful 
body when he does not obey the laws 
of nature? One of these laws is "Take 
judicious exercise, employing all the 
muscles of the body."

ing education. The mind must work

is the primary object of such exercises

A FRIENDS' BOARDING SCHOOL IN ENGLAND. 



BY HERBERT T. CASH. 



Concluded. 



Sideot School has ten teachers, five j different classes. For instance with us 
1 either side, one oft.hu \*A\t ! t-u,* a ^,A^ „.,v.s«^» . /■ ^, , 



the special subjects of the head master 
were Latin, French and Grammar, the 
next one-Science, Geography and 
Beading, the third had Algebra, Geome- 
try, Arithmetic, Writing and Dra wing, 
and the fourth master, English history. 

The ten year old boy on entering 
school is usually put into the fifth class, 



on either side, one of the lady teachers 
devoting her whole time to the teach- 
ing of music. The Superintendent takes 
but one class occasionally and he and 
his family have quarters of their own 
under the school roof. There are two 
matron's also, one for each side of the 
house, and a force of servants. 

The head master is the first-class but has the chance of going up into 
teacher and the others range in order the next one every half if he is near 
down to the fifth. This latter is gener- the top of his class. For every subject 
ally called a pupil teacher, that is, he marks are awarded ; the lessons are nev-

a rise in his salary of £1 per annum, rest had the same answer ready they

for the teacher to pass it before going 
downstairs. Then came the punish- 
ment which was generally so much writ 
ing or "lines" as it was called. At one 
time the punishment used to be run- 
ning round the playground so many 
times without stopping and without 
cutting short any of the corners. 
Evening school was devoted to the 
study of our lessons for next day, and 
when we had done that we could put 
our books away and read. In winter 
we had no school before breakfast. 
Every other day except in cold weath- 
er we bathed in the swimming bath and 
afterwards had a sharp run round the 
school grounds. The water was heated 
except in hot weather and the delight 
we had in it was unbounded. Every 
boy had to learn to swim the length, 
twenty-five yards and when he did so 
he obtained the sum of 2s 6d, given in 
the shape of a book. One of the teach- 
ers gaye a good deal of his time to 
teaching the art. and occasionally we 
had swimming and diving competi- 
tions. The girls had the like privi- 
ledges and few of them were unable 
to swim the length of the bath. They 
also practiced in the gymnasium and 
obtained great efficiency there as well 
as the boys under the teaching of a 
visiting instructor. Before the days of 
the "gym" we used to have all kinds 
of drilling and marching exercises. 
On Wednesdays all the boys frequently 
took a long walk together with two 
teachers in front and two or three be- 



hind. As we were always hurried 
along at a good pace, it was irrever- 
ently styled by a good many of us a 
"pig drive," for we would rather have 
been at foot ball. In summer we al- 
ways had a cricket match to play on 
Wednesdays and Saturdays, either at 
home or away, and* it was freqently 
the same in winter with foot ball. Ev- 
ery sp,.re minute we had would be 
put in at one or the other of these 
I games on the play ground, while on 
our half holidays we of course played 
in the field. We therefore excelled in 
them while quite young and our oppo- 
nents, sometimes big fellows, would be 
astonished at the way we could walk 
over them. There was always great 
excitment when we returned home af- 
ter a victory. 

On Thursday at 11 o'clock we bad 
meeting. The meeting house belongs 
to the school and is close to it and has 
a big clock which strikes the hours. 
On Sunday we of course stayed in bed 
later than usual, and at nine we went 
into school to study and recite Script- 
ure till 10:45, when we got ready for 
meeting at 11 o'clock. Dinner on Sun- 
day was always hailed with delight, 
for then we had pie. Every old 
scholar will remember those enormous 
pies, they measured six inches deep, 
one inch thick and nearly eighteen 
inches across, and there was one for 
each table. We had one hour for Bible 
study in the afternoon and at four 
o'clock we all went for an hour's walk 



THE ORESCENT. 



together, with one of the teachers. 
Then came tea and from then till even- 
ing meeting we walked the play 
ground or shed. It was a common 
sight to see numbers of boys walking 
round arm in arm with their particu- 
lar chums. We had singing at our 
evening meeting- and the Superinten- 
dent usually read to us from such | 
books as the lives of William Pen a, I 
George Fox, Stephen (irellet auJ Jo 1 
seph John Gurney, etc. 

Every afternoon between the hours 
of one and three, all those boys having 
sisters or first cousins were allowed to 
walk with them in the gardens. A 
great number of the boys had collec- 
tions of various kinds, from postage! 
stamps and beetles to butterflies and I 
shells. At the close of the winter half ' 
there was an exhibition at which these 
and specimens of wood carving were 
awarded prizes. We also had a Senior 
and Junior Literary Society. 

Every half we had an excursion 
which was about the most delightful 
thing of all. We (the whole school), 
generally went in carts to some distant 
place, sometimes the seaside, and took 
along a wagon load of provisions. We 
could follow our own sweet wills as to 
what we did when not eating and as a 
rule we chose to explore the country. 
Anyone can imagine with what delight 
we roamed about and enjoyed our- 
selves on being let out from the daily 
school routine. The discipline and 
government was strict to the letter,' 



and we always regarded our teachers 
with respect and sometimes awe. 
When not using the term "Mr." we 
j had to say "Sir," with becoming rever- 
I ence. 

| A severe punishment was, being sent 
j to bed, either for "cheeking" a teacher 
| or some other offence. The present 
I writer distinctly recollects only too 
i well one boy who was repeatedly sent 
to bed for a daring offence of one kind 
and another, and fed on bread and 
water. Going home for the holidays 
! used to be great fun as several of us go- 
I tug in one direction would get into a 
| railway carriage and lock the door and 
j then proceed to enjoy ourselves as only 
| English school boys can. 

As Easter comes around each year, 
old scholars from all parts come flock- 
ing down to the dear old place to have 
a week's holiday and enjoyment 



The best method of securing the 
, standing of students has been a de- 
I bated question. Objections are found 
to any plan perhaps so far tried. Some 
of our Eastern schools are agitating the 
question of which of the two methods 
is the best. The written examination 
or daily class standing. Last fall the 
latter plan was adopted in Pacific Col- 
lege and has worked successfully. It 
has the effect of making the 'whole 
term an effort to keep a good record. 
There is no cramming just before ex- 
amination and no time wasted in long 
hard anxious work on the last days of 
a term. And a higher grade is re- 
quired than in the old method.

We quote live points given by Dr. A. 
W. Rogers, President of Northwestern j 
University, showing why a small town j 
is a desirable location for a college: 

1. "In such a place the students | 
will best do their work: for there will 
be less to distract their attention from 
their books. 

2. in a small placa, too, the profes- 
sors can best do their work for similar 
reasons. 

6. It is possible to liye in a small 
place on less money than would be re- 
quired to live in a large city. 



4. In a large city the temptations of 
dissipation are of necessity many times 
greater than in a small place. 

5. A college placed in a compara- 
tively small town creates a scholastic 
atmosphere which is alike helpful to 
students and professors. But in a large 
city this stimulating influence is lost," 



David 8. Jordan, President of the 
Stanford University, is a very practical 
observer. He recently said: 

No tax on iron was ever so great as 
the tax he pays who leaves his mowing 
machine unsheltered in the storm. 
The tax on land is high, but he pays a 
higher tax who leaves his fields to grow 
up to weeds or thistles. The tax for 
good roads is high, but a higher toll is 
paid by the farmer who goes each week 
to town in mud knee-deep to his horses. 
There is a high tax on personal property, 
but it is not so high as the tax on time, 
which is paid by the man who spends 
his Saturdays loitering about the vil- 
lage streets. All the farmer's income 
arising from the wise use of his time 
means one-sixth of his income. Mow- 
ing machines, threshers, harvesters 
and all the array of contrivances pro- 
duced by the ingenuity of a labor-sav- 
ing age are burdens and not helps to

osition from one of the societies at the

cepted. 



THE CRE 



- The continued raining the past i 
month, stopped out door sports But j 
fair weather is expected the remaining 
part of the year. 

—Home of the young folks attended a 
party out in the country, on the even- 
ing of the 16th. They found the mud 
to be rather deep, and the bridges hard 
to cross. 

— Prof. Rogers, of Pacific Universi- 
ty, at Forest Grove, gave a lecture 
March 21, on "Our Inheritance in the 
the Beautiful." A large and attentive 
audience was out to hear his lecture, 
and all seemed pleased with it. 

—Mr. and Mrs. Edwards opened their 
doors to the public, for a reception for 
Rev. J. H. Douglas and wife, April 9. 
A good time was had in conversation, 
address of welcome, and response with 
a serenade by the Newberg Glee Club. 

—Considerable time and money have 
been spent on the college base ball 
grounds this spring. It was scraped 
with the heavy road grader, logged, 
harrowed and rolled. We hope the 
boys will enjoy a good game, and suc- 
cess on the grounds. 

— Contrary to the custom heretofore, 
the spring term has been increasing in 
numbers. As a rule, the number of 
students has diminished almost half. 
The term is over half out, and we can 
think of but one student quitting, while 
there have been eight or ten come in, 
and still others to follow. 



(SCENT. 13 



—The boys have been putting in a 
! good deal of time on the lawn tennis 
grounds the past two weeks. A hot 
contest is expected in this line. A 
citizen of the town has agreed to give a 
prize to the best player. Who shall it 
be? Most likely he who commences 
now to practice, and keeps it up 'till 
Field Day. 

— There was a called meeting of the 
students to organize a Pacific College 
athletic association, to make prepara- 
tions for Field Day. R. E. Hoskins 
was elected President, Daisy Stanley 
Secretary, Rose Hampton Treasurer. 
A committee was appointed to propose 
college colors and yell. Also a com- 
mittee to nominate the various com- 
mittees for Field Day. 

— Two more churches have been built 
this spring; they represent two denomi- 
nations, the Baptists and the Metho- 
dists. Newberg now has within her 
corporate limits, seven church build- 
ings in which regular services are held 
on the Sabbath. When a new school 
or church building is erected in the 
town, we should be thankful that it is 
not a saloon; for it is one more element 
in favor of education and more or less 
will help to support our beloved col- 
lege. Encourage and uphold every 
movement for the good of the cause; 
but stand bravely against every element 
of society that would tend to pull down 
the educational institutions of our town.
